Lemon Coconut Crusted Cod & Garlic Asparagus 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

Cod

  • 3-4 fresh cod filet (frozen works fine too)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 6 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut flakes
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp lemon salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Asparagus

  • 1lb. fresh aspargus (chop the ends off)
  • 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

Misc. Items

  • 1 fresh lemon
  • non-stick cooking spray ( I use coconut oil)
  • aluminum foil 

  • elevated steam basket ( so you don't turn your aspargus into mush)

                   This is ours:

 

TO PREPARE:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine milk, flour, shredded coconut,  paprika, salt & pepper. Stir until mixed.
  2. Roll cod into batter, evenly spreading around each piece. (If you are using frozen fish you will need to soak it under water for at least a minute to get batter to stick)
  3. In your pressure pot, add 1 cup water, 2 Tbsp olive oil, asparagus, and garlic. Then, gently lay your elevated steam basket on top of your asparagus.
  4. Now, make little "boats" with your aluminum foil and spray the inside with your non-stick cooking spray. Then, gently place your cod into each boat.
  5. Top each piece of cod with a slice of lemon. Now, close and seal your lid.
  6. Cook on manual HIGH pressure for 5-minutes. (7-minutes for frozen but your aspargus will be VERY soft) Allow for a 5-minute Natural Pressure Release and Quick Release any remaining steam. 
  7. Open lid and remove your cod "boats." Place boats on a baking sheet and broil in oven for 1-2 minutes to give your cod a nice crusty texture. (This step is totally optional as it still tastes GREAT soft)
  8. Serve cod with more fresh lemon and your garlic asparagus. ENJOY!!

  • If I’m not making the asparagus, do I just put the aluminum “boats” on a trivet?
